Don’t just take our word for it – here are a few comments received from Sargies’ customers:

Thanks Dave – we had a fantastic time.
Thanks very much for coming out. Everyone loved the food and enjoyed the part you played in the evening’s festivities.
Here’s to next time 

Dear Dave & Kirsty

Your friendly professionalism, coupled with a delicious meal, were the
key components in a memorable evening. We would have no hesitation in
unreservedly recommending Sargies. A first-class job. Very many thanks

Best wishes for 2013


Dave, I wanted to say thanks and leave feedback for the buffet/informal dinner you did for me and my 9 friends last week. The food was exceptional and the service perfect. We loved having you in the house, and you turned a great evening into a memorable one.

Thanks again - we'll see you next time we're in Cornwall for sure!



Dear Dave and Kirsty
I just wanted to write to thank you for coming to our rescue at very short notice, to cater for Gary's
40th Birthday dinner at our holiday house in Mawgan Porth last weekend.
You put together the perfect menu for the birthday boy and it was delicious.
We were so grateful that you travelled so far to cater for us and gave us an evening to remember.
Thanks again


Hi Dave,

Thanks for the note, we enjoyed the extraordinary tasty food very much, made all the finer for coming straight off the beach hungry from a days fun and not having to prepare it. We are still working our way through the lemon cheesecake!

We're looking to back in the area quite regularly with the children next year, you'll definitely be part of our arrangements with a bit more notice next time, thanks so much for your flexibility.

Wishing you and your family the very best.

Frank, Maija, Izzy and Ophelia Bruce


Hi Dave,

Thank you so much for a very special evening. The whole family (those that could make it) really enjoyed it - particualrly the freshness of the food. The little one, Jessica, thinks she would like a private chef all the time!

It was lovely to meet you and your wife and dine so well so informally.

Thank you again and all the best for the rest of the season.

Take care.



Hi David

I would just like to thank you so much for our meal on Saturday delivered to Brocksmoor House.

It was delivered on time, was absolutely delicious and the cake was first class.

Thank you and kind regards,

Barbara Bodkin


Hi Dave,

I just wanted to say thank you so much for such a fantastic dinner in Cornwall. The food was amazing and I am desperate for your lemon tart and chocolate pot recipes!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you and hope to have another chance to choose something else from your menu.

Kindest Regards,



Hi Dave and Kirsty
Just back from our week away and wanted to say our huge thank you for making Patrick’s 70th birthday celebrations so very special.
The food was amazing everyone really enjoyed the meal and it was incredible how you managed to cook everything in the kitchen and serve in the barn in such a professional way, we all felt very special – especially the Birthday boy with all his treats!!
Hope we didn’t keep you all too late and thank you for making our very big extended family feel that you had put so much effort into the evening. We partied until 2am and a few sore heads in the morning, but all worth it!!
We will be recommending you to anyone visiting your area and hope to be back ourselves to Stone Barn in the future as we loved it there – a perfect spot to relax and have fun!
All the best to you and your team and loads of thanks once more
Anne and Patrick

Hi Dave

Just to say thank you so very much for doing the most amazing dinners last weekend everything was delicious and the canapes amazing! Thank you so very much – you really did make the weekend……

Thanks again and have a good year!
Best Wishes


Hi Dave

Got back to Thame over the weekend having enjoyed our week in North Devon. Really appreciated your input on Saturday 2nd - a great evening and everyone was well pleased with your input - everyone was very complimentary.

Thank you once again


Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful evening last Saturday – you couldn’t have done more. Everyone thought the food was magnificent – the fillet was to die for. Please thank the girls for looking after us so well. Sorry the drink flowed so freely – it got worse after you had left! Thanks again


I recently bought a Treacle Sponge Pudding and it was delicious! Many thanks


Thanks for the meal you did for us last Saturday, everyone enjoyed it and it was nice to be cooked for and then cleaned up after. Cheers.

Hello, I don’t normally feel it necessary to comment on food products, however after seeing you guys at the food fest in plymouth a few weeks ago I felt compelled to, we purchased one of your treacle puds and I have to say it was truly amazing, so how pleased was I last night when I went shopping to Morrisons in Plymouth, to find a new section of Cornish goods with your desserts on. We just had to try the chocolate pud, again absolutely fantastic especially with some rather good vanilla ice cream made with Cornish clotted cream. Anyway just wanted to let you know we are now addicted fans so keep up the great work and keep Morrisons well stocked

Darren & Carol

Dear Dave, Just to say thank you for all the delicious food. We really enjoyed every scrap and it contributed greatly to the relaxation not to have to think about what to cook. Many thanks


We have just eaten the chocolate mousse and the black cherry cheesecake we bought from you in Bideford this morning – DELICIOUS! The yummiest cheesecake we’ve ever had! Thank you!

Dear Dave, thank you for an excellent meal at Neet Meadow the other week. Everyone enjoyed the menu and thought you were great!


Just a quick note to say thank you very much for the fantastic meal you delivered to us in Bude on 20th June. We all very much enjoyed it and everything heated up beautifully, once we’d worked out how the ovens worked! The cake was absolutely gorgeous too, it was a real treat with a dollop of clotted cream. If we’re ever holidaying in the area again, we’ll be in touch!
Many thanks

Rebecca Byrne and family Dinner Party

Hi Dave, just to say a big thank you for such a lovely meal on Saturday night – we all really enjoyed it and how wonderful not to have to do any washing up! Have spoken about you to the Vowlers who own the property and they will be sticking you on their recommendation list for future visitors.


Dave, we just wanted to write and say thank you very much for helping to make our recent stay in Bude a memorable one. We are so pleased we decided to use your services – it made a fantastic holiday with our young girls and even better one.

We enjoyed all you made for us (that you kindly delivered even though we were running late and weren’t there to meet you with payment) especially the fish pie on our first night. We were too full to eat the apple crumble while we were in Bude so we brought it home and... heaven! Now that’s an apple crumble!

We will return to see Verity and her cottages – hopefully early next year. We’ll also be giving you a call to ask for more of the same delightful dishes!

Marcus, Karen and our daughters Bo and Coco

Hi Dave, just wanted to thank you again, for a really great evening, and the wonderful food you made for us. Sam was over the moon with the meal, and truly surprised too.

A million thank you’s


Just a little note to say a huge thank you for Saturday night. We all had an absolutely fab time with no stress. Your meal was absolutely delicious and I have been raving about you all day to friends.

So once again THANK YOU for making our short weekend break away that bit extra special.


I just wanted to say thank you for an excellent evening. We all had a
really good time and the food and service was first class.


Just eaten one of your sticky chocolate puddings for sweet tonight, picked it up from Asda in Penryn on the way home from work, really impressed, well done you guys, we look forward to trying some more of your range. Have to say that I don’t think they were displayed in the most eye catching place in store, when i picked the pudding up and read where made and ingredients etc. I was very willing to take it home and glad I did!

Sharron and Chris Hough (Helston)

The kitchen was well enough equipped for our needs, but I suppose Dave needed more as he was doing a 4 course meal, which I suppose you wouldn’t normally do in a holiday place. His meal was absolutely fantastic and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. We could not fault the food and service that him and his wife provided. – It’s a shame they are not closer to us!


We had a great weekend. Thank you so much for making the Saturday night so special for us all. Mum really enjoyed herself and hasn’t stopped talking about the amazing food and what a great group of people you were to have there. The perfect balance between professionalism and friendliness really made for the most relaxed evening, with the kind of food that you would normally only get at restaurants where you couldn’t kick your shoes off under the table (or take an hours break in the middle to put the kids to bed!)! As I mentioned I’m really happy to recommend you to any or all of my friends who may have similar occasions (how far are you willing to travel??!).


Many thanks for the delicious meal, and kind service by the two of you,we would certainly recommend you and use you again if the need arose.


The meals were great, just what my son needed after traveling down after work. Actually not just him we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Brilliant to have them delivered to the door and then put into the kitchen with a smile, what service. They were so easy to cook, generous portions and SO not the run of the mill ready meals. Everything was extremely tasty and it was just like eating out without going out in the cold! The desserts were amazing, but it all was so not fair to single any of it out! Look forward to using you again next time we’re in Bude.

Karen Harris and family

Our party of 10 booked Sargies Cornish Kitchen to arrange canapés and evening meal to be prepared at the holiday home we were renting for a week. This was our treat “on arrival” having traveled from across the UK. Dave was very easy to deal with beforehand and creating a bespoke menu to cater for all tastes was easy.

On the night the service was relaxed, professional and discreet – we were totally looked after by the waiting staff and the food was delicious – freshly prepared and beautifully presented... all the preparations and clearing up were done – when Dave had left you would not have known they had been there... apart from 10 very satisfied diners!

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this flexible, innovative and quality service.

Kevin Gallagher

Dave, Thank you so much for a wonderful meal and you and Karen were excellent hosts. It was a very speacial evening


We had a brilliant time too and everyone was very impressed with your cooking and the fact that you were all lovely! If we are back down that way in the future we will be booking you again!


Thanks again for making the evening really special. We will take the opportunity to make recommendations for your business where we can because you deserve it.
Best Regards


We stayed as part of a family group of 9 (in the Daymar, Doyden and Pentire suites). All were well equipped, spotlessly clean and very comfortable; the Daymar was larger than the other two and provided an excellent base for all of us to gather. The location was great – right on the beach and 15 mins from Padstow / 20-25 mins from Watergate Bay. Stein’s Seafood Restaurant was good, Fifteen was better, but our highlight was the chef that Ocean Blue arranged to cater for my father’s birthday – Dave (www.sargiescornishkitchen.co.uk) whizzed up a meal to rival Rick and Jamie in the comfort of our own apartment, so that on a beautiful evening we could all relax, have a drink and eat fantastic food in the comfort of our own apartment and no washing up! We are talking of a return visit already…

Dave, we just wanted to write again to you and say thank you very much for helping our return stay in Bude another great holiday. Your food and service were one of the incentives for returning this year following our trip last autumn.
We will return and you will be contacted!

Marcus, Karen and our daughters Bo and Coco

Dear Dave. You and your helper ensured that the evening was truly memorable. Everyone was especially enthusiastic about the canapés and the lamb was perfect.


Hi Dave, we all thought the dinner party was great, and the food (and of course the choice of wines) was absolutely fantastic. Thank you to both you and Deborah. We will certainly be in touch when we are next in Cornwall.

David B

We all had a great time thanks. Food was lovely.


It was good to meet you last Tuesday and having arrived home late yesterday, I just wanted to thank you very much for entertaining us to a lovely meal on Wednesday. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and it was so lovely for me to have a meal cooked ‘at home’ for my family without me doing it! I look forward to next time we come away to Cornwall/Devon to arrange for you to do the same again but unfortunately it probably won’t be until next summer now (not unless you travel to Birmingham!!).

Verena Adams

The day passed effortlessly on our part, thanks to you and your team.
We appreciated all your lovely food and all the help over and above what we may have expected.
Best wishes to you all.
